A little Coy Fish, Not just a pond fish.
The word 'coy' in coy fish is derived from koi, the Japanese name for carp. They originated in Eastern Asia, Aral Sea, Black Sea and Caspian Sea. These are widely cultivated fish in China and Japan. The breeding of these fish first became popular in Japan in the 19th century when farmers accidentally discovered these brightly colored creatures and started to raise them. Gradually it became popular throughout Japan but the rest of the world still was not aware of this kind of fish. When the use of plastic bags became popular, the shipping of coy became faster and safer. Thus their shipping began to other countries, throughout the world. They are now found in most of the pet stores. There are both, the colorful varieties as well as the dull gray variety of coy fish.
